The holiday season is a time to celebrate, relax and spend time with loved ones. And for many of us, the festivities often include get-togethers and parties filled with delicious, but not so healthy foods. While gaining a few extra pounds over the holiday season may seem inevitable, with a little effort and a few simple tips from Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC), you can enjoy the merriment of the season without the guilt.
Driving can be a challenge for everybody at times with issues like traffic, road construction and changing weather conditions. However, driving can be an even bigger struggle for those with a change in their medical condition after injuries, illness or age-related changes.
Shawnee Mission Medical Center’s (SMMC) Driving Rehabilitation and Training Program strives to help senior citizens and those with disabilities drive safely and independently as long as possible while keeping the roads safe for all drivers.
It’s that time of year. You’re sick with the flu and you need immediate care by a physician. With no time to schedule a doctor’s appointment, you may think your only option is to head to the Emergency Department (ED). Before you do, stop by Shawnee Mission Urgent Care, where same-day care is available without an appointment for unexpected illnesses and other services that are not typically available in your physician’s office.
To highlight the services offered to patients and join the nationwide effort to increase awareness of the role of urgent care clinics in health care, Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC) is recognizing Annual Urgent Care Awareness Week from November 14-20.
